After escaping Leyhill Prison near Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, two prisoners are on the run, and cops are searching for them.

Sky News reported that the two men, Carl Perry, 37, and Shawn Dibble, 44, absconded from the open prison for men on Sunday evening, according to Avon and Somerset Police.

Dibble, who is known to frequent the Bristol area, is described as being 5 foot 9 inches tall and having brown hair and blue eyes. The medium built man is serving a sentence for "burglaries, theft, robberies." As for Perry, he is serving a sentence for robberies. He is also described as 5 foot 9 inches tall man, with a slim build. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, and has tattoos on both arms. He has a missing an upper front tooth. Police shared that Perry is believed to have links to the Midlands region.

The police tweeted the information about the two men, and warned the public not to approach them but to call 999 immediately.

Though the two are still on the run, police have arrested two people for assisting an escaped prisoner as part of their investigation into Dibble and Perry, according to Bristol Live. Two women aged 65 and 43 were arrested on suspicion of assisting one of the escaped prisoners, and they are currently in custody. Cops have not confirmed if the two women are suspected of helping both Dibble and Perry or just one of them.

In a separate incident, earlier this month, two of the three inmates who escaped from a Barry County, Missouri, prison were captured. The Barry County Sheriff's Office said that Christopher Allen Blevins was taken into custody near Casper, Wyoming. The second inmate, Matthew Allen Crawford, was captured in Springfield, reported Ky3.

Crawford was found hiding in a shed in the 1000 block of West Elm Arcade Street, and he did not have a weapon on him, said police. He did not have any connection to the property owners. The third inmate, Lance Justin Stephens, remains the only escapee on the run, said Barry County Sheriff Danny Boyd.

The three men cut a hole in the ceiling and entered a water heater storage area on June 2, and they broke an exit door, said investigators. The men then stole a truck and left it near Salina, Kansas after which they probably went their separate ways, according to Boyd.
